John Renbourn & Wizz Jones: Famous Grouse House, Edinburgh

Colin Harper, MOJO, November 1998

FOR SEASONED Renbourn watchers, there was little in the great man's own set tonight that surprised, but much that delighted. Booker T's 'Sweet Potato' has been in the Renbourn repertoire from the days when he was otherwise engaged teasing low volume licks from a Gibson 335 in Pentangle. Likewise 'Lord Franklin', a cautionary tale of heading off to find a North-West passage with champagne, and not too much food, on board.
